Sometimes through no fault of your own, life throws you a curve. You may get hurt in the work place or at home and not be able to work. Social Security and other government programs may be your only option. If you have been denied, then your only option to receive financial assistance is to file a disability appeal. Filing for disability assistance whether it is from Social Security, Medicare or some other source can be tough.Hopefully, if you need to file for disability you can get accepted on the first try, but if not don’t be afraid to challenge the system and appeal.
